Established in 2009, Flagstaff Sports Exchange has been a staple of the Flagstaff community. In a mountain town where outdoor sports are more than a big deal, Flagstaff Sports Exchange has garnered a reputation for being an affordable supply store for athletes from all walks of life. From hikers and campers to yogis and snowshowers, Flagstaff Sports Exchange is the first stop for any Flagstaff enthusiast’s needs. This local shop is popular amongst both the college community and the town’s more permanent residents. It is without a doubt the best place in town to get fairly priced, gently used sports gear.
Flagstaff Sports Exchange operates on what owner Katy calls a win-win business model. Patrons bring in their gently used gear in exchange for store credit, which can be spent like cash on up to 50% of the price of all items in the store. Katy’s business model seems to be working, too. She’s met a niche that the Flagstaff community had long been needing to fill. Her friendly policy means that the students and growing families of Flagstaff can find what they are looking for without breaking the bank.
